I love Panera Bread, especially this time of year. Their pick two (2) is a great choice for your money. The Broccoli Cheddar soup is the best along with a sandwich is just the right amount for lunch. My sandwich was on some type of hard bread which surprised me, I was looking for the normal honey wheat bread. I... More

The sandwiches are a tad bit on the expensive side, but they are good. The soups are tasty as well. I'd go there more often if the prices were more competitive.

Panera has a,problem with the portions of there product. If you get a salad you say where is it. Be prepared to be on a diet. I don't think there is a value my opinion.

I go to Panera all the time for my travels and usually order the same thing. When my full size salad came out, it looked more like the half size I get elsewhere. I even confirmed it was a full size with the kitchen guy. So, I probably won't be back here if I am hungry.

Fresh baked bread and pastries always makes me happy. The service is always on point. The environment is relaxing and cozy and the wi fi is plentiful!

I have eaten in a number of Panera locations. This one is only average. Staff okay but not as friendly as other locations. Food average compared to other locations.

In my opinion what makes Panera stand out is their fresh homemade bread. I have eaten here twice this week. First time I added a "bear claw". Fantastic!! Tonight I added a cheese danish. The best I've ever had.
